WWE announced plans to air a one-hour special edition of last week’s NXT tonight at 7 pm eastern. This gives WWE a one-hour head start against AEW Dynamite.
The one-hour NXT special features Finn Balor’s heel turn on Johnny Gargano and other highlights from last week’s show.
The live NXT broadcast, starting at 8 pm eastern, features;
- Women’s Tag Team Champions The Kabuki Warriors are taking on Tegan Knox and Dakota Kai.
- Candice LeRae vs. Io Shirai
- Tyler Bate vs. Cameron Grimes.
AEW Dynamite will feature;
- Finals of the AEW World Tag Team Championship tournament between SCU and The Lucha Bros.
- Young Bucks and Kenny Omega vs. Hybrid 2 and Kip Sabian
- Hangman Page vs. Sammy Guevara
- Cody Rhodes and Chris Jericho will sign the contract for their World Title match at Full Gear.
- The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express will be there to present the World Tag Team Championships to the winners of the tournament.
It will be interesting if the one-hour NXT special has any bearing on this week’s viewership numbers. Both AEW and NXT are going up against a game 7 of the World Series at the same time.
